over healthcare for the entire nation, and whiskey aside the tenth amendment. look hyped us, the constitution and the declaration of independence. and then i do have a plan that deals with people with pre-existing conditions. that's part of my healthcare plan. >> cenk: so what can he do with that richard? >> well, it's clearly a problem because if i was playing let's say i was acting and playing someone who was lower status to someone next to me, i would defer, i would look down, i would be afraid to be direct. like i said before, i think that came from not--the inability to face the lies head on, and not knowing what to do about if, but the result was he came across as inferior in a way. there was a great article in the the atlantic last month about this angry black man phenomenon. i had a stepfather that i grew up with for some partly of my life who was a civil rights leader, clarence jones. he was martin luther king jr.'s lawyer. obama reminds me of growing up a little bit with this man because he was in the business world. he was in the political world and he had to keep

with people with pre-existing conditions. that's part of my healthcare plan. >> cenk: oh, is that right? i love the way he phrased that. i have a plan that deals with pre-existing conditions. he didn't say it would cover pre-existing conditions. in fact, if you don't have continuous coverage. if you're out of work for some reason and you don't have coverage for three months, you're done. if you have a pre-existing condition he's not going to cover you. you know how many americans were in that boat? between 2004 and 2007, 89 million people. that means nearly one-third of the country would not be covered if they had a pre-existing condition. you're not going to cover them. again, why? because you know that the american people want to be covered for pre-existing conditions because they do like obama-care. so you want to ride off that without actually doing it. that's fraud. and then of course there was this great opening by mitt romney. >> romney: you said you would get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i may

marijuana, you name it, he has betrayed the american people on healthcare, and there needs to be a very different voice in this race talking to american people. cenk, the thing that i think people lose sight of is that the third-party candidates actually represent the mainstream of american people. poll after poll show it and there has been the pull out of the democratic and republican parties. >> cenk: rocky anderson and presidential candidate this year. thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you. thank you cenk. >> cenk: we're going to have fun. we'll have conversation whether mitt romney is too cheap and god knows i know cheap. that will be an interesting conversation, and is he crazy? we'll have that when we come back. >> he's so full of energy. i don't know about you but we're similar in that we're a little bit lazy. >> my biggest concern obviously would be his mental well-being. (vo) what is said here could decide the election. current tv presents coverage of the presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you're going to hear that used as a major talki

with no healthcare for those over 65. that's the alternative. the monetary collapse--excuse me quickly. a monetary collapse when the dollars we have in our pocket don't buy a thing because of the inflation that is going to go along with borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 of every dollar. >> cenk: ron paul seems to be saying the same thing do you but you haven't been able to capture them-- >> that's not the case. your ron paul supporter, i'm saying the same things as ron paul. i ran for the republican nomination. i thought it would be really hard to marginalize two people on stage saying the same thing ron paul and myself. i didn't find myself marginalized. i found myself down-right excluded while ron paul was marginalized. >> cenk: thank you so much for joining us. >> cenk, thank you much. >> cenk: all right running for president for the libertarian party. when we come back, the elbow of the day. >> cenk: michele bachmann is one of the darlings of the right wing. she ran for president. she was leading for awhile. so obviously she's got her own race locked up, right? wrong.
